Thomas the cat (to be known in later car­toons as Sylvester) finds Tweety in the snow warm­ing him­self by a cigar butt. Thomas’s mis­tress res­cues the lit­tle yel­low bird before her cat can devour him, but Thomas doesn’t give up. He uses stacks of chairs and a Rube Gold­berg setup to get at Tweety while try­ing not to get caught by the lady.
